We are passionate about supporting our future teachers. Getting great experience while you are studying gives you a great start to your teaching career.
Our students benefit from working alongside supportive, high performing teams. Seeing great practice in action every day is the best way to grow your own teaching knowledge and experience. The best part? You can grow and explore without needing to leave BestStart.
We support our students throughout their time at BestStart by offering financial assistance while they are on practicum in their second and third years of study as well offering extra sick days and discounted ECE centre fees to make the work/study balance a little easier.
We also provide the BestStart Study Scholarship programme, in which scholarships each valued at $5000 are offered to a few students towards fees in their third year of training for their ECE degree. In return, successful recipients are asked to commence their teaching career in a BestStart centre for 12 months after successfully completing their ECE degree and gaining teacher registration and certification.
